I have a server running Mandrake 9.0 which has Evolution 1.0.8 running on
it. My problem started a few days ago with a piece of spam that was received
in the Inbox. Any attempt to delete, view or access this piece in any way
displayed a message something like "accessing...", and my hard disk went
crazy. This continued for 10-15 minutes and then a message was displayed
that the component of evolution that reads mail crashed and it would be
necessary to restart the program.
During this period my machine was most un-responsive. Using top indicated
that evolution and kswapd had a good hold on my machine.
Today I got two more e-mails just like the first one. The strange thing is
that all three have headers that are somewhat prurient. (Can't access the
content, machines freezes.)
I'd like to delete them(or remove them from my Inbox). I'd love to prevent them from being received.
Has anyone had a e-mail from hell like this?
I've posted a similar request to the Novell Evolution forum but no one has responded. Any help would be appreciated.
Sounds like you could use a spam filter that leaves the mail on your server until you review it. With Windoze, I'm using Mailwasher Pro that does a nice job, however I don't have a problem in Linux and can't recommend one for you that compares to it. Maybe Google can find the right one for you.
